Binghamton Athletics celebrates Black History Month
Every February, Binghamton athletics joins with the rest of the country to celebrate Black History Month and honor the achievements and contributions of past and present Binghamton African-American student-athletes, coaches, staff and administrators.
We also reflect on the advancements toward racial equality and the continued fight for racial justice. The NCAA has a commitment to acknowledge and celebrate all student-athletes. As such, we honor the contributions made by generations of Black and African American athletes on and off the field.
